2 March - 5 March 2023

For the 2023 Aotearoa Art Fair TMG is pleased to present new work by stone carver Joe Sheehan alongside paintings on canvas and bark by Aboriginal artists working at Art Centres across the Northern Territory and Western Australia.

On the opening days of the Fair, Thursday-Friday, our presentation includes a suite of paintings made with earth pigments on bark by artists from Buku Larrnggay-Mulka, Arnhem Land NT.

The booth also features works in ochre on canvas by Mrs Phyllis Thomas (1940-2018) and David Cox from Warmun, WA alongside a pair of works in ochre on board by Helen Garrawurra who works from the Art Centre on Milingimbi Island, NT.

On Saturday and Sunday we will show paintings on canvas made by artists working at Spinifex Hill, Warakurna Artists, Warlayirti Artists and Warnayaka Art.
